Material Takeoff

Quantity Take Off Meaning

quantity takeoff

Take off meaning in construction refers to a process for measuring all materials for certain elements of a building project. The term “take off” means to take measurements from drawings to ascertain quantities.  

The quantities can then be used to work out the required materials, plant, labour and other items which may need to be factored in to estimate the cost of this particular element. 

Construction take-off meaning and quantity take-off meaning are effectively the same thing. Think of it like reverse engineering how much quantity you need of certain items for making a cake.

If a cake was presented to you with no ingredients the take-off task would be to find out how much flour, eggs, bi-card soda, icing etc would be required to make that cake again. 

Construction Take Off List Example

Here is a look at our material take-off list below. This construction take-off example list is an extensive look at all the different elements of a take of as set out in the Australian Standard Method of Measurement of Building Works  Sixth Edition.  

This construction take-off template list allows our business to make sure all elements of a project are considered correctly throughout the material and quantity take off journey.
